Drawing Fashion, which has been guest curated by Colin McDowell, shows the changing role fashion drawings - from its beginnings as an advertising tool used prior to the widespread use photography, through to its use by today's leading designers as a way of representing the inspiration and mood of a new collections inspiration.

Spanning Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Pop Art and beyond, it's the perfect exhibition to please your inner fashion geek.
